Kumro Torkari (Pumpkin curry) goes well with steam hot rice or Roti or Muri (Puffed Rice). There are couple of such dishes which are made in different ways by different people as per their taste and preference. One such popular dish is Sorse Kumro Torkari (Pumpkin curry) which can be taken both with steam hot rice or Roti and very popularly taken with Muri (Puffed Rice). But being a Bengali I prefer to have this dish with Rice. It tastes simply awesome.
